I am 61 years old, I recently got a green card sponsored by my son who filled affidavit of support. I applied for health care in market place showing my income earned on tutoring and getting tax credits. Am I eligible for the benefits?. Should I add my Son's income also?

You are required to have a visa foil (sticker) in your passport, not just an approved I-797 notice from USCIS.

I agree with Mr. Radtke. You will need to visit the law enforcement agency in addition to the courts to see if you can get a certified copy of the arrest record, as well.
